Purpose and Activities

The foundation furthers the philanthropic intent of its founder, Elizabeth Bingham Blossom. It supports organizations in the fields of education, science, health and human services, and the arts. It works for a world that is environmentally self-sustaining; seeks to strengthen civil society and its institutions; educates family members and others in the values and practice of philanthropy, community service, and stewardship; and it seeks to build a sense of community.


Incorporated in 1955 in OH - Ms. Elizabeth Bingham Blossom established the foundation in memory of her brother, William Bingham, II, as a means of continuing the philanthropic tradition of the family. The foundation's grantmaking initially focused principally on educational, cultural, and health and welfare organizations in the Cleveland, OH, area. In 1977, the trustees, who are all descendants of the founder, broadened the foundation's objectives to include grantees outside the Cleveland area and less traditional programs
